Salutations! I'm new to the group and wanted to blog about the smart lipo procedure on my knees, calves and ankles yesterday. When I was researching online there were not too many personal experiences with lipo on this area, so I hope this will help other people considering this area. First off, I'm 5'8' and weigh 145 lbs. I've always been tall and curvy but my lower half never matched my upper half. I have (had) heavey lower legs, my ankles were 10" in circumfrence and calves were 15" in circumfrence. My knees had a rather large amount of fat on the inner knee pads, as well on top of the knee. Today is my first morning after surgery and I must say, it's not as terrible as some people say it was going to be. My knees do not bother me much, but I will say my calf muscles are extremely sore. It almost feels like I worked out hardcore with my calves and they are just very sore to walk on. I've been keeping my legs elevated to help with the swelling, as well I'm wearing my compression garments - which aren't the most comfortable things. This morning I go for my post-op visit where he'll remove the garment and take post-op pictures . I will follow-up with my recovery as the days go on and will post more pictures throughout the recovery. For now, have a great day! Slim Legs (wannabe)
